the dargies sing songs of the islands

Need to slow down after a busy year? Check out these liner notes…

“In this age of great scientific achievement, noisy cities, fast cars, rockets to the moon, computers, speed and more speed we all long for some brief respite every now and then from the frantic pace of life. What better means of getting such relief than through the tranquility of Hawaiian music.”

Fresh from Melbourne 1966 – and the crazy records pile at Retro Active. Swing by and ask Tony and Wendy about kitsch vinyl, as well as 70s pop, jazz, and blues LP’s.


About Vetti

I love good coffee, street art, tiki bars and kitsch. Adore roller derby and quiffs and vintage Hawaiian shirts. Enjoy a slice of my northside life!

    What amazes me is that (the digital tv channel) Go still call the Jetson’s ‘futuristic’.. and the day they properly call it retro-futuristic I will

  4. m1k3y: exactly…techno utopianism here we come! makes me want to read Gibson’s Gernsback Continuum again
